This message asks recipients to pray for the recovery of Greg Comer, who battled cancer for seven years. But, sadly, Mr Comer passed away on the 26th February 2011.
The message began circulating via Facebook and other social networking sites back in 2011. It has continued to circulate sporadically in the years since and again gained momentum on Facebook in 2017.
The information in the message was confirmed via a Facebook Event Page that was set up for Greg Comer and his family in 2011. The event page explained that, at the time that Jacob’s prayer request message first began circulating in early January 2011, Mr Comer was in a coma and his family was warned that he may only have a short time left to live.
However, later updates noted that he came out of his coma and was able to return home for a time. But, he passed away soon after.
An example of the message:
